Okay, you gotta love this. Bill O'Reilly, conservative talk show host extraordinaire, claims that a man's sex life is a private thing.

I'm serious.

"We're uneasy about this kind of exposition," O'Reilly said. "Somebody's sex life should have nothing to do with any kind of policy."

This comes from a man who thought nothing of outing a judge as a lesbian. Not to mention the fact the conservative platform he supports not only ventures into people's private bedrooms, in the case of sodomy laws, but also wants to claim rights to a woman's body, in the case of abortion laws.

But mess with some Republican nightmare right to bang someone in the bathroom stall? Never mind he has been working hard to dismantle and never allow basic rights to LGBT Americans. A man's sex life... well, that's over the line.

Oh, come on Bill. You have got to be kidding. A man's sex life is his private business? Not since JFK was in the White House has there been a hands off rule for politicians and their sex lives. You didn't seem to think twice about calling for Clinton's head when he was having private, consensual sex.

In Mr. O'Reilly's interview with Mr. Rogers on Monday night, Bill showed so much concern for the image of gay and lesbians in America I figured he was ready to join the crusade for LGBT Equality.

What will people think? He pleaded.

This the same guy who reported "about a national network of lesbian gangs (150 in DC alone) who were raping schoolgirls. In addition to being a national crime cartel, Bill's reporter, Rod Wheeler, breathlessly tells him that a lot of their viewers will want to know that some of these lesbian gangs call themselves Pink Pistol Carriers."

And he cares about the perception of gays and lesbians across the country? Please, Bill. I might not be the brightest bulb in the chandelier but that's just plain stupid.

What is awful is for LGBT people across this country suffering from ridiculous laws like Don't Ask, Don't Tell, the Defense of Marriage Act, and to have Hate Crimes legislation stalled by the likes of Larry Craig.

Who probably ISN'T homosexual, just passing the time. And arrogant enough to think he'd never get caught.

Kinda like you and those phone calls, huh, Bill?

Maybe you can start slow in the gay rights movement with the Pink Pistols group, Bill. Lesbians with guns, they're all hooked up with the NRA.

We have seen this type of double-think from O'Reilly before ... remember, drug abusers should be thrown into jail mercilessly, but O'Reilly should be forgiven for blackmailing his Guatamalan housekeeping lady into being the drug-runner for his supply of 5,000 Oxycontin pills.

Sarah. I love you; you know I do. But I'm afraid I have to point out a minor error.

"Lesbian gangs!!!" is properly spelled with three exclamation points. ;-)

And ooops.... speaking of spelling, sorry about the extra letter in your name, Sara

Why is Bill O'Reilly still on the air? Why do people still listen to that windbag?

Those could become Zen Koans for me, at least the latter, a question without an answer for me to ponder and expand my understanding of the universe, because there really isn't an answer.

Jim, thank you for pointing out my error about the lesbian gangs!!!

I am personally going to warm my children of large women roving the school yard with hairy legs and armed with tabouli.

Maybe we should all send Bill O'Reilly a thank you note for saving the children and watching our backs.
